Description of The Longhouse Dorset

Willow our shepherd hut is set on grounds of our property, she’s well equipped with log burning stove, oven fridge and gas barbecue.

She has an outdoor gas shower, WC and wash basin with running water, firepit and gas barbecue are also available along with electricity and Free Wi-Fi.

She sits in the grounds of our 600 year old thatched cottage surrounded by paddocks totalling 8 acres with great access to the local heath and the New Forest National Park where you can walk for miles.

Nearby we have good pubs and restaurants.

Within 10 miles are the market towns of Wimborne and Ringwood where you can meander through the streets looking at the trinket shops or grab a coffee and cake at one of the great street cafés on offer,

For the shoppers there’s Bournemouth which is 12 miles away with all your high street brands and our award winning beach, nearby Poole, offers ferry links to Brown Sea Island, France and the Channel Islands.

Poole has a natural harbour and plays hosts to some of the most stunning boats made locally at Sunseeker.

Historically Dorset has loads to offer and local attractions include the tank museum at Bovington and Monkey World, along with Moors Valley Country Park.

Alternatively you can do nothing but laze around, light the firepit, open a glass of your favourite tipple and watch our amazing stars in an almost unpolluted sky.

On site we have 6 alpacas which are very friendly and will often wait outside to greet you.
